Honestly, I don't think I'm biased when I direct you to my brother's blog. Doug Eboch wrote the original script that became Sweet Home Alabama. He now teaches at Pasadena Art Center. He started his blog to give his students additional information, and it's been followed by people around the world. I love the way he analyzes movies to make his points. I find a lot of his advice applicable to novels as well.

Doug now has a book out, The Hollywood Pitching Bible, written with his colleague Ken Aguado, an independent producer. Not only does it cover the art of pitching, but it has good advice on choosing ideas and developing them, since those are important elements to a good pitch.

"I find a lot of his advice applicable to novels as well." (Chris)

I've found great in-depth character and plot analysis in screenwriter forums. Yes, much of it is applicable to novels. Thanks for the link to your brother's blog. I'm bookmarking.
